Beautiful Show
It sounds amazing.
Check out Sugaree & the rest of the show as well.

I was sitting pretty high up at this one, and Tennessee Jed had such a powerful upward surge that the phrase 'blow the roof off' seemed apt. A few weeks later, the Civic Center had to close for a while, due to structural damage to the roof!

I believe 77 is the FINEST vintage Dead . . .Without Pigpen,that is. May of 77 may be the highest peak the boys ever reached . . even Donna is on the ball. They were really cookin' that night. And on my effin birthday? . . .What a rad site this is!

Thanks for the tip, fremontbob.

That is one for the books. Jerry explores every inch of the space without once stepping out of the box. The lazy blues pace of the last movement is particularly fine.

I'm also keen on the Row Jimmy which trudges across the tundra like an Imperial Walker on its way back to the moisture farm for another injection of Dantooine yam-yam.

Without a doubt, the best and most underrated show in existence. The SOUND IS AWESOME, and again, the best Sugaree EVER! See for your self.
INCREDIBLE. I have a few hundred shows, this is still my favorite.

This show is right in sync with all of May 77. Sound quality is pretty good, and the beats are outstanding.
